petraeus, the general had an affair with his biographer paula broadwell that came to light after the fbi began investigating harassing e-mails sent to jill kelley, a socialite in tampa. the fbi found out it was broadwell sending those e-mails. according to the washington post, the e-mail described kelly as a -- i don't know why they do this. as a seductress. accused her of having a relationship with petraeus. for more on where things stand we're joined by chief white house correspondent -- mike isikoff, and of course we've got david corn, who's on the show now from mother jones. let me talk about this, first of all. i think it was interesting of the president to give almost a complete snow white description of this guy. he referred to the affair, which is the reason he's being removed from office, as a single side note. i mean, bill clinton went through -- he was keel hauled. >> yeah, yeah. >> this guy get a single side note. >> just a pesky asterisk. but, you know, politicians and presidents for years in washington have been using david petraeus as cover. if you can get underneath -- >>
and shirtless fbi agent in the petraeus scandal have in common? just wait. we'll show you more. newsroom starts now. i piercing sound of an air raid station. it is a chilling sound, becoming all too familiar as rockets continue to fill the air over israel and gaza and a planned cease fire, visit to gaza by egypt's prime minister may not be holding up. senior international correspondent sarah sidner is in the middle of it all. she has more for you from gaza city. >> reporter: what is happening on both sides of the gaza/israel border looks and feels like war to anyone who has to live with it, no matter what the governments on either side have declared. this is a small taste of what it fe felt like in gauza over a 24-hor period. >> that is exactly -- all right. i'm going to move out of the way and let you get a look here. i'm going to let you get a lock at what is going on. i can see the black smoke. it's difficult to capture on camera. you saw that flash. this is what we have been dealing with all day. we've also been dealing with -- i'm sorry, the power has just gone out. we have been dealing wi
and departments that have their hands in the libya affair, cia, dod, state, white house, fbi, i think it's clear that the cia's jurisdiction in a lot of what happened was probably minimal. that makes petraeus's downfall all the more sad, because i think of everyone the cia and david petraeus probably had the cleanest hands in all of this. we have to see. we obviously have plenty more questions going forward. >> to your point, s.e., it shows his resignation was over the extra-marital affair. >> yeah. >> i want to take a step back here on this whole issue. i mean, i think -- let me start by saying that i think the questions about the security at the consulate in benghazi are legitimate questions that deserve investigation. the thing that republicans have really glomed onto is what susan rice said on face the nation. i want to play her comments so we can put that in context. >> i understand you have been saying that you think it was sfont n spontaneous. are we not on the same page here? >> let me tell you what we understand to the assessment at present. first of all, as you discussed with the presi
wants to have lunch in the obama white house. i mean, why not? >> and it happens. you write about an fbi investigation, and to attendant to that that paula broadwell almost became an fbi officer herself, right? >> i'm told that she actually applied, passed a polygraph and they were ready to offer her an appointment. >> she didn't take it because harvard called? >> i don't think it went too well at harvard. she could have been an agent. must have been surreal for her to be standing in her house with fbi agents searching her house and she was just a step away from becoming an agent. >> talk about fredrick humphries, the fbi agent who jill kelley contacted. what's his story? >> what's interesting is that, you know, this is the time where you're not liked in the bureau or the police department or whatever, this is when they start kicking, you know, when you're down already. and no one's kicking him. i mean they still speak pretty highly of him. he was in the terrorist task force himself. up in seattle. and he was the lead agent in the millennium bombing case. >> oh, yeah. >> did a great job.
minister, the cia station chief called it an act of terror. we had the fbi and i believe the national center for counterterrorism also giving briefings. >> paul: that's right. >> saying this. why was general petraeus's testimony then so at odds with other parts of the community? >> but does this, would this give-- what does it mean for, say, susan rice and the administration then? is this, does this help them politically by shielding them or does petraeus here saying i thought it was a terrorist attack, does that mean this puts, for example, susan rice's statements more up to scrutiny? >> well, i think answers the fundamental question, did they deliberately mislead on this case for political reasons because they were driving the narrative that al-qaeda had been decimated and the war, war was receding or a question of incompetence. neither of those two things is good for the administration although it's after the election, so, they can get the consequences. >> let's take a look at the president talking about susan rice, the u.n. ambassador who many think he will nominate to succeed hil
community there, including folks from the state department, the fbi, everybody there was asked, do you know who made these changes and nobody knew. the only entity that reviewed the talking points that was not there was the white house. so, you know, i don't know whether -- what they said yesterday is exactly right or not. but, what i do know is that every member of the intelligence community says that references to al qaeda were removed by somebody, and they don't know who and references to attacks versus demonstrations, were... >> chris: let me ask you a question. will your committee, the senate intelligence committee, call ambassador susan rice to ask her to testify? >> i don't know the answer to that question right now, senator feinstein and i will talk about that. two more hearings are scheduled -- >> should she be called. >> she'll have to come in and testify at some point. whether it is in a closed hearing or an open hearing. we're going to have an open hearing, too. but at some point she needs to come in and say what the president or the white house directed her to say. >> chris: se
problematic e-mails. and of course the third track involves paula broadwell, biographer of petraeus. and the f.b.i. still has an investigation into broadwell because of her handle ago and perhaps mishandling of of classified information. and there could be other investigations, frankly, we are not aware of. >> schieffer: tom ricks i was struck by something you wrote in an op-ed or someplace that you didn't approve of general petraeus and paula broadwell but you also thought it was none of your business. >> i think there are two scandals in the whole petraeus affair. the first scandal is why the f.b.i. was looking into lovers' quarrels. the second and more troubling to me is that we seem to care more about the sex lives of our generals than the real lives of our soldiers. everybody can tell you the name of paula broadwell. nobody can tell you the name of the americans killed in afghanistan in the last week. i saw some stats that said there were about 50 casualties in afghanistan, which is dead and wounded, since petraeus-- the petraeus affair came out. nobody is paying attention to that. to me, a r
about. f.b.i. and nypd are hunting for a serial killer. he was is wanted forly murders. detectives are looking into several motives that said the man has a fascination with numberology. they want to question four people who might have more information. call 911 if you know anything. >> steve: a family waking up behind bars. a single dad accused of leading his two children on a of heists that were honors children. they arrested donald scott cat and his 20 year old son in connection with a hold up and his 18 year old daughter drove the get away car. they robbed as many as five banks in oregon before moving to texas. >> it is a complete shock. you wouldn't suspect them. they were solid members. >> steve: surveillance video did them in when they found they were buying disguises in a home depo. >> brian: she's in charge of highway safety in massachusetts. but busted with a driving record. burgess had 7 accidents and wrapped up four speeding tickets. her latest accident was in august in a state-issued car and now burgess was removed from her job. >> alisyn: a dog can do math? the one, pl
the experience at one point of having your phone tapped by the fbi. >> it was a home phone. >> once the director of the aclu, director of the washington, d.c., we talked about the petraeus scandal, what had gone on there and the fbi investigating that whole thing. when you say that unfold, there were a lot of questions about whether the fbi had gone too far, in terms of what it did. what was your take on that from the civil liberties point of view. >> well, i think it underscored what i think this is a very serious problem i think we have to deal with. our e-mails are not protected. we all think our own information is protected from the government and at least they need a warrant. but the fact is, the supreme court said a long time ago that if your records are in somebody else's possession, at that time, they were talking about bank records. but if your e-mails are at google or yahoo or wherever, in the cloud somewhere, and they don't have to get a warrant. they just go to the company and say give us the records and most of the times the companies do give the records. we don't know exactly how t
between the two apparently happened after bro broadwell admitted to the fbi that she and petraeus had an affair. we get our "1st look" at the fbi agent who actually started the investigation that led to the cia director's resignation. this is frederick w. humphreys ii, a personal friend of jill kelley. lawmakers have to wait another day before hearing general petraeus's testimony on benghazi. there were questions of whether the former cia director would take part in the house intelligence committee. instead he will appear behind closed doors with both intelligence committees tomorrow where leaders will zero in on all of the information they have been wanting to get from him. let me bring in nbc news capitol hill correspondent kelly o'donnell. she's standing by. kelly, there's a new report out today that in the last few days of his tenure with the cia that general petraeus really wanted a time line of events and some other information released, perhaps clarify the cia and the information it had. >> well, they've been trying to piece together information, and petraeus was part of trying
walked right into one of the most blackmailable situations that you can v good that the fbi found out about it before the russians or the chinese. that is the problem. not that he is a general mess egg around and certainly even though according to the uniform code of military justice, that's not allowed, that's not what the press is focused on. the press is focused on the director of the cia having this problem. >> perhaps the biggest story today is benghazi, blowing up again. republicans, john mccain and lindsey graham and others pushing very, very hard now, getting very vicious in their rhetoric toward ambassador rice and so on. what do you think, at the central plank of this do you believe ambassador rice is at fault or is she as barack obama said, she was merely passion on intelligence? she was not a key player in all of this, therefore, if he wants to make her secretary of state, he can do it. what do you think? >> first of all, i was substituting for george stephanopoulos that sunday as host of "this week." we were trying to get secretary of state hillary clinton, all of the sho
questions in the petraeus scandal like why did the fbi keep investigating the cia director if he committed no crime? and could petraeus have resigned for basically nothing? joining us from minneapolis is former cia officer criminal defense attorney jack rice. good to have you here. this new "washington post"/abc poll finds out that even after he resigned people see general david petraeus in a favorable light. could the president bring him back, nominate him as the next cia director? do you think that's way too far off the map? >> it probably is way too far off the map. realistically, now, you have to look at anybody in his position, anybody at the flagship level if you will. these guys are politicians in the first place. that was before he was director of cia. come in as director, generally speaking you're still a politician. it's hard to bring them back. there is a political cost to it. in fact, there's been some other names that are out there that maybe more likely than what we've seen from the president at this point. >> let's talk act those other possible names, the replacements. we ha
judgment for now on the fbi inquiry that exposed david petraeus' personal life and forced him to resign. >> thanks to president obama for the confidence -- >> reporter: david petraeus no longer heads the cia, but he's volunteered to testify this week to congressional benghazi hearings as new details emerge about the e-mails that helped end petraeus' career. >> he's provided this country an extraordinary service. >> reporter: speaking for the first time about the scandal wednesday, president obama praised petraeus for extraordinary service saying he's seen no signs of a national security breach over the course of the investigation. >> i have no evidence at this point from what i've seen that classified information was disclosed that in any way would've had negative impact on our national security. >> reporter: republican senators brushed off that scandal calling the attack on benghazi far more important. >> there's the weird and the strange and the human failings in one camp. and there is a legitimate question about national security being breached in the other camp. >> reporter: meanwhi
hearings on that but more importantly there's an n fbi investigation and a state investigation. they are looking very definitively into all aspects of this and that report should be coming out in december. could slip but that's it. >> jill, rice also said she looks forward to being able to have further dialogue with senator john mccain and others. does that indicate or set the ground work that she believes that the white house will be nominating her for that u.s. secretary of state job? >> reporter: that is a good question. the president has been praising quite a lot. he defended her saying if you want to go after somebody, talking to the republicans, go after me. she knows him well. she considers her a good candidate. she has a lot of experience. >> she is definitely in the running. nobody will know but secretary clinton says she will be leaving regardless at the end of this administration, beginning of next. >> i want to say happy thanksgiving to my son triston and my family and friends. thank you so my brother for the support. i couldn't have done it without you. ♪ i wish
papers." "the new york times," the fbi agent who initiated the investigation that led to the discovery of cia director david petraeus's affair has been identified as frederick humphries. humphries began the investigation after jill kelley complained of harassing e-mails which later turned out to be paula broadwell, the biographer. humphries is a veteran agent who has helped investigate high-profile terror suspects like the so-called millennium bomber. >>> "washington post," nearly 50 million people in the united states are in poverty. up from last year, according to the census. a new formula shows more people relying on safety nets as higher costs of living and medical expenses sent poverty members upward. california, the district of columbia, arizona, florida and georgia top the list of places with the highest levels of poverty. >> from our parade of papers, "the cedar rapids gazette," fema may need to request a congressional bailout as flood claims from sandy quadruple capacity. it's a fema subsidiary and claims from sandy could top $12 billion. the program's essentially the country'

by the i.g. and the d.o.g. and the fbi and the cia and that might have something to do with it. it is a situation that has turned tampa, and again, we have seen it on "saturday night live" running the humorous skit, but at the heart of it is macdill air force base which is right now observing events in israel, they don't control the military affairs there, but over in egypt as well as the rest of the region, so they have a lot on their mind as well as u.s. special options command and as well as the area that brings in millions off dollars into the local community. so it is a mandate to engage with the community and that is what parts of this "friends with macdill" was. >> well, talk about the probe and how that it is run to investigate and reveal, i guess, how many people around the community have access to the nation's military leaders. >> no, they know. there's about 800 people on the "friends of macdill" program and created by the previous base commanders to get community leaders on to the base in daylight hours and nonsecure areas to engage with the community. what they are
the shirtless fbi agent? he'll be there. >> they're calling this the first national security scandal that involves the cia, fbi, omg, and wtf. >> all right.

been no formal response. and within the last few minutes, greta van susteren has reported that the fbi is now on the ground in tunisia to question the only known suspect in custody and significantly this comes after the intervention of republican senator lindsey graham who wrote tot tunisian government requesting questioning why there was a lack of access to the suspect. jenna: senator graham spoke to jon yesterday and mentioned his frustration with that. interesting to watch that side of the story. >> reporter: one point on that. this really begs the question if a senator could intervene with the tunisian government six weeks after the attack and at least a week after the suspect was in custody, why was it that apparently the white house or the justice department didn't take the same course of action? jenna: sounds like a good question. jon will be discussing this a little bit now. great reporting as always, catherine. thank you. >> reporter: you're welcome. jon: these brand new revelations could bring more political fallout just four-days before the election. let's bring in jonah gol

. to this date we don't have the fbi interviews of the survivors conducted one or two days after the attacks. we don't have the basic information about what was said of the night of the attack that's been shared with congress as of this date. so, i remember the john bolton episode pretty well, our democratic friends felt like that john bolton didn't have the information needed to make an informed decision about ambassador bolton's qualifications, john bolt tone to be ambassador, and democrats dug in their heels saying we are not going to vote, we are not going to consider this nomination until we get basic answers to our concerns. all i can tell you is that the concerns i have are greater today than they were before, and we are not even close to getting the basic answers. >> could you support her as tk*eb secretary of state nominee? >> i have many more questions that need to be answered. bill: that was fascinating. those are the three republican senators that cranked up the heat against the white house and also susan rice and john mccain on "fox news sunday" said that susan rice deserved to be h
